Summer is finally upon us in the great Midwest. That means heat, humidity, weather alerts, road construction, mosquitos, and, best of all…outdoor concert season!
Sure, Pet Rock feels at home in a dimly lit venue with a dance floor and packed bar. But we also yearn to occasionally escape the confines of the club or theater to bring the smooth train to another type of crowd. You know what I mean, right? Smoothin’ under the stars is always a one-of-a-kind experience.
Our first outdoor event of the year was to be at Lauridsen Amphitheater at Water Works Park in Des Moines, Iowa. Let me tell you, this is a fabulous venue, and we were stoked to kick off the season there. Unfortunately, the rain spirits had other plans. Despite our offerings, pleas, and prayers, there was not just some rain but a deluge that flooded the stage, and the show had to be called off. If there was any way possible to play, believe you me, we would have. Des Moines is our second home, and saying we were bummed out is an understatement.
But let’s try not to relive the past and instead look forward to another one of our upcoming outdoor shows and remember what makes a Pet Rock show outside so great:
Even though our first show of the year was a rainout, we are looking forward to a summer full of groovy gigs. Check out our schedule of shows HERE.
I hope I see you somewhere down the road.
